Great Deals at Target Today! And Awesome Customer Service To Boot!

I got some great deals - and great customer service at the Target in Sparks today :)  I made the cardinal mistake of coupon shopping and brought 2 of my kiddos to the store with me.  While they were actually very well behaved, the oldest tried to be too helpful and just started loading things up on the belt without realizing that I wanted to do separate transactions.  I got that smoothed out and was able to do the separate transactions because the cashier knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Yeah! :)  But then, he (DS) pushed my cart (and coupon binder) away and I paid without using all of the coupons I wanted to.  No Bueno!

So, I sat the boys down at the Starbucks tables and headed to customer service where I thought I would have to re-do the whole transaction, but luckily she was able to just add the coupons to my receipt and I just got cash back!  Loving Target SOOOOO much right now.

So here were the deals I used:

Transaction 1:
Buy 5 Dreyer’s or Edy’s Ice Cream, 1.5 qt $2.99 (Drumsticks were also included in the deal, for $4.94 normally $4.99, and since that is what I had coupons for - and they are my family's fave right now we got 5 of them) recieve $5 Target Gift Card.

Used 5 $1.50/1 Drumsticks Coupons I had

Used $5.00 Target Gift Card I had from one of last week's transaction.
Paid $12.20, Received $5.00 Target Gift Card

Final Price: $2.44 each

Transaction 2:

Buy 10 SoBe Lifewater, 20 oz $1.00 each, Get $5 Target Gift Card

Pay $10.00, Receive $5.00 Target Gift Card

Final Price: $0.50 each when you buy 10

And I planned on the transaction below, but my Target store was down to only 1 box of Crackerfuls, so I picked it up because it was still a good deal and we love them!

Buy 3 Ritz Crackerfuls, 6 pk $2.40, Price Cut thru 7/16

Buy 1 Newtons Fruit Thins (free)

Use $1.00/1 – Ritz Crackerfuls 6 pk, Target Coupon – (

Bought 1 Box of crackerfuls $2.40
Used $1.00/1 – Ritz Crackerfuls 6 pk, Target Coupon – (
